The CFDA/Vogue Fashion fund, founded in 2003 by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue magazine, announced its 10 finalists for this year’s event. The fund offers emerging talents a cash prize ($200,000 to the winner and $50,000 to the two runners-up), and mentorship programs lead by fashion industry leaders.

 

This year’s finalists are Richard Chai, Jason Wu, Irene Neuwirth, Albertus Q. Swanepoel of Albertus Quartus, Alejandro Ingelmo, Juan Carlos Obando, Swaim and Christina Hutson of Obedient Sons & Daughters, John Patrick of Organic, Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai of Vena Cava (who were finalists last year as well), and my personal favorite – Alexander Wang.
